A slew of features (Battery Saving Mode, BlackBerry Blend…) arrived with the latest BB10 OS update (10.3.1.15xx to be exact), however a certain feature caught our eye!
BlackBerry’s strong (possibly strongest) point remains security, the same can’t be said for the number of apps available to the platform. Yes, there are a number of popular apps just as they exist on other mobile OS but that’s about it. That’s probably why the Blackberry OS 10 allows users to install Android apps.
The functionality isn’t new but we found something on CrackBerry that appears to make it easier. Try it out and lets hear your comments on our channels below.
Chances are that a number of you have either purchased or had some hands-on experience with BlackBerry Z10, BlackBerry’s latest device running the conveniently named OS; BlackBerry 10. While you’re still catching your breath with the departure from what you been used to (the physical keyboard and OS) for so long, the follow-up – Q10, is soon to hit our shores (or stores) to address your tactile cravings.
Of course, you can always pre-order from online stores or have some benevolent relative or friend send it to you if you’ll rather have it sooner than later. But, we recommend waiting as prices will fall…they always do. Look at the Z10 now, its well under N94,000.00!
To help you make up your mind on whether to go with the full touch screen on the Z10 or keyboard and touch screen with the Q10 (similar to your Bolds, Curves…) here’s an incisive review to help you decide.
Got a request from one of our clients who wanted to transfer his contact from his blackberry 9900 to his new Samsung Galaxy SIII. He found out all his contact where not wirelessly synced to his email. We have decided to share with you a simple way to get around this.
- Connect your Phone to your PC and click on the Blackberry Desktop Manager.
- Backup your Phone and disconnect from the Desktop Manager
- Go to CONTACTS>>>OPTIONS>>>UNCHECK ALL EMAILS (Do same for calendars if you want to have a backed up copy.
- Go to OPTIONS>>>ADVANCE SYSTEM SETTINGS>>>DEFAULT SERVICES>>>CONTACT LIST (SYNC). Select your preferred email address you want to use as your DEFAULT email.
- Exit to the home screen>>>Go to CONTACTS>>>OPTIONS>>>CONTACT DISPLAY AND ACTIONS>>>Select ” ALLOW DUPLICATE NAMES”. Press the exit button and save. (more…)
Except you’ve been under a rock for the past year or so, you’ll know that slates are all the rage particularly that from the fruit company. Although, it’s no longer plain sailing not if the South Korean chaebol has any thing to say about it.
Of course, you shouldn’t get one because you want to keep up with the Joneses or say “me too” to your boss (which could get you “redeployed”, even “downsized!”). It can actually do much more. (more…)
While its gearing up for the January 2013 release of the BlackBerry 10 OS, RIM has released something to whet the taste buds of its customers. The ubiquitous mobile messaging service; BBM, has hit version 7 which means it will come with some improvement (or maybe just a security patch)
The more interesting news is that BlackBerry users will now be able to make voice calls over a Wi-Fi network through BBM…for free! Now you can LOL for real 😀 (more…)
Yes, you read it right. Visafone the CDMA operator has announced that the popular RIM device; BlackBerry (and its ubiquitous BBM service) is now available on its network. This makes them the first CDMA operator to do so. While Visafone indicated that three devices will be available for purchase, no details were given on the particular devices.
The company has said the device/service becomes operational in November but customers can pre-order from Monday, October 29.
If you own any of these BlackBerry phones: Bold 9790/9900/9930, Curve 9350/9360/9370/9380/9220/9320, and Torch 9810/9850/9860, then you’ll be able to make your phone a wireless hotspot. But first, you’ll have to update to OS 7.1 which varies in size from 50MB to slightly over 70MB (on both devices I’ve updated). But you’ll have to download the update via a wi-fi connection with a (preferably) fully charged battery…and may be get some tea and crumpets 🙂 (more…)
